The MoStability Workout

Target both mobility and stability with double-duty exercises.

Generally speaking, if you’re looking to build stability, plank holds and one-sided balances find their way into your routine. If you want to improve mobility, you focus on more athletic drills and exercises. However, incorporating basic movements into all-too-often static stability poses allows you to simultaneously boost both skills: mobility and stability.

The combination, often referred to as mostability, helps your body function better. The five mostability planks below count as full-body exercises because the basic plank requires core strength, and the additional movements also activate the glutes, obliques, back, and shoulders.
